Abstract: 
The intent of this research is investigating the role of gated communities in promoting safer communities.There are contradicting statistics about the impact of gated communities on security and social cohesion of their residents. To examine these relations in this research, gated and non-gated communities were compared. This empirical study was conducted in two contradictory urban districts in Shiraz, south of Iran and included eight gated communities. Some 400 families were chosen among 14’000 households living in the sampled communities and their neighboring areas. The socio-economical characteristics of these families and the physical features of their residential area were statistically analyzed against the crime rate. The result of this study indicated that gated communities are successful in increasing perceived security in Iranian cities, especially when they are provided with formal surveillance. Feeling security among their residents was directly influenced by level of formal control on gates and Social factors (e.g. social cohesion, neighboring, and sense of community). Among physical features of the gated communities, foramal survillence on gates has the most impression on the security of communities. Although there were no significant difference in qulity of physical environment between gated and non-gated communities, social cohesion were much more in gated communities.
